I have a certificate saying I'm qualified in basic food hygiene. Took a three month evening class course then passed the exam.

I've never used it but at the time I had an idea to open a Bistro locally. The certificate I have is the minimum required to legally open a food outlet.

Still might do that thing, I had this idea to open a fast food vegetarian outlet or maybe a sort of up-market veggie cafe playing some decent music.

Must admit though, running a food outlet is hard work, early start, on your feet all day and constant cleaning.

Ah, but do you use it?

I got that one as well, but I use it.

I got other stuff too, but I use them or have used them, so didn't mention them. :)

Chris:

You got a food hygiene certificate as well eh? How come you took that one then?

I also have a certificate here for 'Chest examiner'

I'm not really sure what the certificate entitles me to practice but it does look very official and important.

Possibly antique wooden trunks or storage boxes?

I received it from a gentleman wearing a bowler hat and striped trousers on Brighton Pier one Sunday afternoon in 1998.

I had to pay him £10.00 but he assured me it was a sound investment.

I'd like to believe him :)

So if someone has a chest infection you are qualified to examine them :bow:
I'd like to think so :)

Attempting to use this qualification, sometimes I get a smile and a purr, other times I get a slap and a knee in the groin.

Quite odd :confused:
